Cattaraugus Resolution 86-2018

The Cattaraugus County Legislature will be taking up a resolution 86-2018 at tomorrows legislative meetings in support of bills A-9614/S-7583 which extend the deadline for pistol license recertification until next year.

Update on Westchester gun show ban bill

The Westchester bill to ban gun shows on county property passed on a party line vote with all Democrats voting for and all Republicans against.

Given the popularity of the show it is possible the promoters could find a private venue to hold them again.

 

Opinion 17-166

As a follow-up to my previous post, the Watertown Daily Times reports, “St. Lawrence County lawmakers cite ethics issues with judges as pistol permit officer in resolution“:

St. Lawrence County lawmakers want the state to grant authority for counties to remove judges as pistol licensing officers. In a resolution passed during the county’s Finance Committee meeting Monday, legislators unanimously passed a resolution urging the county’s state representatives to pass legislation regarding pistol licensure to create uniformity statewide … The resolution states that the legislators have long been concerned with the manner in which the pistol licensing occurs in St. Lawrence County, specifically with respect to the addition of restrictions, and asks state lawmakers, among other things, to grant counties the ability to designate a pistol licensing officer other than a judge … Monday’s resolution came after the Dec. 7 opinion issued by the state Advisory Committee on Judicial Ethics that states “a judge who serves as a firearm licensing officer must not initiate licensing revocation/suspension proceedings … nor conduct one without a prosecuting agency.” …”

There is state legislation designating county sheriff’s as the licensing agent A-6912/S-908, but SLC legislators are not specifically endorsing it.

Here are copies of the resolution and advisory committee opinion in PDF format:

Bill numbers are A-6912 and S-908.
